How do I import both ID and Description data into a dimension in a blank model in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)?


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.2.2

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Connect to SAP Analytics Cloud
  2. Create a new blank model via "Create > Model" and "Start with a blank model"
  3. Add a New or Existing Account dimension
  4. Add a New or Existing Generic dimension called "Test"
  5. Import data into the model from a sheet with no column headers
  6. Notice that the column for the description of "Test" does not get mapped to Dimension "Test"
  7. Notice that there is no way to map the column for the description of "Test" to Dimension "Test"


This issue is currently under investigation by Product Support.


Add Column Headers to your data file before import that match the dimension name
